There's Something About: My Meal Planning

Ok, I don't plan meals ahead - AT ALL. I already explained I'm not much of a cook. I've tried to plan in the past, but always felt like week after week we were eating the same thing. And I know it would be helpful in this oh-so-busy house. So, I made a small attempt today. I hit the grocery store with a couple of ideas in mind. Here goes...

MONDAY:
Stuffed artichokes and Giada De Laurentiis - Chicken Stew (I found this in my rarely touched recipe binder.)

Hubby & I enjoyed these!
The kids did not enjoy this.
 
TUESDAY:
Baked salmon with lemon pepper, steamed rice and veggies

WEDNESDAY:
Grilled cheese sandwiches

THURSDAY:
Baked pork chops with salad

FRIDAY:
It's almost always pizza night - whew!

I don't have pics or recipes for everything because most of it is just stuff I've always made and doesn't require a lot of prepping, therefore, no recipe needed. But I'll try to take pics the rest of the week so if I use these meals again, I'll have pics on file. That's called blog-prepping. Ok, maybe not, but that's what I'm calling it. I'm trying to sound like I know what I'm doing, you know, while blogging or cooking.

Anyway, I'm linking up here. Have fun planning your meals!

  3. Stuffed artichokes sound good!
    I'm not great at meal planning. Sometimes I get into a groove and do a good job planning things out and other times I just wing it and we run out of food on Friday. (Oops!)

  5. I don't think I've ever had or made stuffed artichokes but that sounds yummy! Sometimes meal planning works for me...other times not so much.
